Week 13 to Week 27 falls in this trimester. Normally the nausea and vomiting subsides in this period. It is the most active trimester, so make use of it to the fullest. I was very tired during my first trimester and hardly found my interest to cook. But my second trimester was bit relieving because i got back my energy to do cooking and other chores.
